Great is the conquest which thou hast entered upon, even the mighty conquest of thyself; be faithful and thou shalt overcome.
DISCIPLE: Lead me, O Master! for my darkness is very great! Will the darkness lift, O Master? Will trial end in victory, and will there be an end to my many sorrows?
Master: When thy heart is pure, the darkness will disappear. When thy mind is freed from passion, thou wilt reach the end of trial, and when the thought of self-preservation is yielded up, there will be no more cause for sorrow. Thou art now upon the way of discipline and purification; all my disciples must walk that way. Before thou canst behold the full glory of Truth, all thy impurities must be purged away thy delusions all dispelled, and thy mind fortified with endurance. Relax not thy faith in Truth; forget not that Truth is eternally supreme; remember that I the Lord of Truth, am watching over thee.
Be faithful and endure, and I will teach thee all things.
